Is vaping worse than smoking?

Many smokers believe that vaping is as bad (or even worse) for them than cigarettes, often due to reading inaccurate stories in the media which are based on urban myths or bad science.

Vaping is not entirely risk free but the Office for Health Improvements and Disparities (formerly Public Health England) says vaping is ‘at least 95% less harmful than smoking’. This figure has remained unchanged since data was first published in 2015.
